Turisas

Named for a warrior god in Finnish mythology, Turisas are a heavy metal band whose music is an ambitious blend of symphonic metal, power metal, progressive rock, and Finnish folk music. Turisas were formed in Hämeenlinna, a rural community in southern Finland, by vocalist Warlord Nygård and guitarist/bassist Jussi Wickström in 1997. Eager to perform their songs that blended pagan folklore with bloody tales of warfare, Nygård and Wickström recruited three likeminded musicians, percussionist Tude Lehtonen, keyboardist Antti Ventola, and guitarist Georg Laakso, but the epic-scale sound they sought proved difficult to capture on tape, and Turisas' first attempt at recording an album, 1998's Taiston Tie (aka "The Battle Path"), never saw release due to the group's dissatisfaction with the results. In 2000, a demo CD, The Heart of Turisas, was distributed to fans, the press, and industry professionals, and coupled with the group's storming live show, word spread about the unusual band and Century Media signed the group to a recording contract in 2003. Turisas' first proper album, Battle Metal, recorded at studios in France and Finland, was released in mid-2004, with the band supporting the album with appearances at a number of major European metal festivals. In the fall of 2005, Laakso was involved in a severe auto accident that caused major injuries to his spinal cord, forcing him to leave the band. Wickström took over all guitar duties for the recording of Turisas' next album, 2007's The Varangian Way, while Hannes Horma (bass), Olli Vänskä (violin), Janne Mäkinen (accordion), and Antti Laurila (accordion), four musicians who had helped fill out the group's sound during live concerts, appeared on the disc as full-fledged bandmembers for the first time. A few months before The Varangian Way was to be released in the spring of 2007, Antti Ventola announced he had left Turisas in a post on the group's online forum. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

@elanmimoun: There are some good songs on Turisas 2013, but they're just good, not epic. While until I heard these guys I would never, ever think I would be saying this, I agree, they need Netta's accordion back to add that sound that made The Varangian Way and Stand Up and Fight so awesome.

They need Netta Skog back I hate the keyboardist they went from battel meta to typo negative thing if I was in this gr8 band I'd find a new accordian player ASAP. The new stuff is ok but it's missing Netta and they're bad a** bass player :( Netta if u read this please save this band I know school is important try classes on line

Why would their personal beliefs detract from the beauty of the music? Metal =/=satanism, a t h e i s m or any ism for that matter

What is strange is that half this band is Christan they have kept it under just for musical reasons (they don't want to be called a Christan metal band, and there clearly not !) It is great they got me going to church...aga i n ) .

Just to nitpick the bio, Turisas is a rune, not a god.

Pretty Sure Finnland is a way better to place now than the US. I live in the US and personally im sick of this place. Hopefully I can move to switzerland and visit Finnland as much as possible. Thank you Turisas for Rasputin. Love that song!

@ jorgecharron Stand up and fight means, STAND UP AND FIGHT. Not with words, not with political disdain. It means get your fat a** up and fight if you have something worth fighting for.

@ jpawlikowski the song was not talking about fighting with literature so that is irrelevant, but people who are stuck up like that and think the U.S is the only one to stand up and fight is the reason we keep having to fight. anyways Turisas is a great band lover there music

...As someone from the US, I'd just like to apologize for gpawsingh's unnecessary jingoism. We're not all like that.

And to be much more on-topic, Turisas is an amazing band. It's a shame they haven't had anything new come out since Varangian Way. We need more music like this!

I f**king love this band, every one of their songs is epic and amazing in every way. I can't even imagine how awesome it would be to see them live. Why was I not born in Finland?

@gpawsingh: that's complete bull. you don't even know what you're talking about. stop being ignorant about the attitudes of other countries. i can tell you countries that never give up against being opressed. There are many different ways to stand up and fight. While the US uses military ways, most Latin American countries use literature and critics to fight, go back to the 1900s and learn western history. Not only have there been so many literary critics, but also many rebellions and wars. The
